Didn't know which area to post this to. Maybe I decided wrong.
I'd like an opinion on an issue. I am hypersensive, or hyperresponsive, to sound. These may not be the best words to describe it, but they should get the job done.
The problem isn't sound per se
. It's certain noises while I am doing something else. To give a general example, imagine I'm having a conversation with people (no problem there), then I leave but remain in proximity to read a book, say. The background chatter in that case would irritate me greatly; make me psychologically and even physically uncomfortable.
I could go on, but that should suffice for my question:
Is it "wrong" to work around this (i.e. staying away from the sound) instead of through it (i.e. somehow developing the ability to always
bear the situation)? That is, my understanding is that if something is "inherently" part of me, in this case a strong tendency to become irritated (and to not be able to concentrate much) with certain noises, then I have to accept and own that characteristic and take it into account in the life-equation, at least to a point. I mean, of course, the characteristic is just my observation. (And my horoscope doesn't lie.) And I don't want to develop the mindset of avoiding
something. I think
I have this one figured out, but I'm not sure, so...
I hope I was clear enough and that this isn't a very stupid question.
